    Depressing Stat of the day...

    Depressing stat of the day. I knew ISU's record was bad compared to other BCS teams on making the postseason, but i decided to do some research with wikipedia and an excel spreadsheet.. (so forgive me if theres a mistake anywhere)

    Since 2006, when mac was hired (so starting with 2006-2007 season)
    Of the 73 BCS conference teams,
    54 teams have made the NCAA tournament at least once.
    Another 14 have at least made the NIT in that time.
    Of the 5 remaining schools, 1 went to the CBI in that time
    Of the 4 remaining schools, 3 of those went to the NCAA or NIT in 2006. (i separate this out because not making it in 2006 wasnt mac's fault)
    The one remaining school that has not had any postseason since 2005? Iowa State.

    I realized it was bad...but not this bad...

    Do we also have the worst record for a BCS school over the four year period?

    Post of the day!!!!! Honestly everyone needs to read this. We are the worst BCS level basketball program in the country. THE WORST! Disgusting. Gross. I want to throw another bottle of beer through a window in my house like I did when we lost to Hampton.

    Yep, that's really sad...especially considering we have had more talent come through here in the past 5 years than alot the other BCS schools that have made NCAA tournaments.

    I disagree. We're among the worst, but there are certainly worse programs around. Playing in the Big XII does us no favors.

    Re: Depressing Stat of the day...

    To be frank, I don't look at stats etc. I only look at how the teams plays and what the coach has to say after word. It was clear to me that early through season 3 Gmac was not the guy.

    It's pretty easy. Just listen to other winning coach's then listen to Gmac. Huge difference in attitude.

    Re: Depressing Stat of the day...

    We are the worst in the 4 year period. Other teams have had worse years during each of the 4 years. But when you consider the 4 year period as a whole, we are definitely the worst.

    Please quit, Greg McDermott.

    If Gmac truly had character and integrity as stated he would do this.
